Vehicular Ad hoc networks (VANETs) allow vehicles to form a self-organized network without the need for a permanent infrastructure. Successful implementations of VANET require standard network protocols, secure communication, and coverage of wireless network among vehicles as well as drivers themselves. This paper presents a simulation study of Realistic Vehicular Mobility Model on the performance study of VANET that uses Ad-hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV), Dynamic MANET On demand (DYMO) and Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR). It gives an overview of the developments of the mobility model and routing protocols for VANET.
